Judge Judy Secures New Court Show On IMDB TV
Judge Judy can’t seem to stay away from the courtroom! The long-time court show judge, 78, has landed a new court series.
After 25 seasons of Judge Judy, the famous judge will star in a new program that will air on Amazon’s IMDb TV. Originally, when she announced the ending of Judge Judy back in March, the show was called Judy Justice, but the Amazon project is currently unnamed.
Judge Judy who’s the highest-paid TV host as she makes $47 million a year, told The Hollywood Reporter,
“I’m over the moon to be in business with Amazon Studios and continuing this incredible journey with them on a new platform is so exciting,”
She went on to even crack a joke about the company, which she was accustomed to well before her partnership.
“I used to yell at my husband, Jerry, for all the packages he had ordered from Amazon every day. I have enough mouthwash in the cabinets to keep the entire planet’s breath fresh until the next millennium. The doorbell never stops ringing. The dogs don’t even bark at the delivery people anymore. After I signed this deal, I apologized to Jerry. Who would have thought that the Sheindlins and Amazon would be mishpachah.”
The show will be produced by Amazon Studios and Fox Entertainment.
Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, co-heads of content and programming for IMDb TV also said:
“Judge Judy Sheindlin is a TV icon and visionary who has entertained millions of fans for decades. As we build the IMDb TV slate of high-quality, ambitious Amazon Studios originals, we are delighted to deliver customers a court program from the legendary Judge Sheindlin who, without a doubt, is the very best in the business.”
Before its ending, “Judge Judy” was hailed for having the highest ratings for courtroom programming in the United States. The show also won three Emmy awards.
